As you probably know, I love to have adventures with my family.  In fact each summer we work together to make a “bucket list” ofAdventures Around Cincinnati things we want to do over the summer.  I’m always on the lookout for new places to go and things to do, because we like to have NEW adventures as well as our “usual” fun things we do around town.  Lucky for me Laura Hoevener & Terri Weeks, the authors of Adventures Around Cincinnati have come out with a second edition of this book.  My copy of the original Adventures Around Cincinnati is a worn book now, from all of the use it’s gotten over the years, and my new edition is quickly getting earmarked and spine-cracked as well.  You may think you know about all the fun adventures that can be had in our area, but I guarantee you can find something NEW to do in this book.  I’ve been poring over this book, getting ready to plan our summer bucket list, and I’ve already found numerous places I want to take the kids.  There are so many things I didn’t know about our area, and I’ve lived here almost my entire life!  For instance, I found out while reading this book that the world’s only Ventriloquism Museum is within walking distance of my house.  I also had no idea that you could take tours of the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport!  And I’m always learning about new (to me) parks in this region that we have not visited yet.  Our Summer Bucket List is going to be HUGE this summer!  If you are looking for inspiration for your own Summer Bucket List, or maybe you just want to find a new adventure for your family, then you are in the right place.  I have a copy of Adventures Around Cincinnati, the 2nd Edition, to give away to one lucky winner!

In the 2nd Edition of Adventures Around Cincinnati you can find an organized collection of over 120 adventures around Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky (within a two hour drive).  Some of the adventures they share are even FREE or very cheap!  The authors provide sample itineraries, ideas for seasonal adventures, advice about how to have fun adventures, and tables that are categorized to make finding an adventure that’s perfect for your family.  I don’t usually read resource books like this from cover to cover, but I sure did make the time to read this one from start to finish.  I loved all of their tips for adventures, and I loved finding about all the cool places we have yet to visit!

If you would like to buy a copy of the book you can find Adventures Around Cincinnati, 2nd Edition on Amazon.  I think that every family in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky needs a copy of this book.  So keep it in mind if you know of anyone having a birthday, child OR adult.  This would be a perfect gift for any age!  At less than $20, you would be giving the gift of inspiration for adventures!
